According to an article in Fierce Wireless (see below)
T-Mobile employees are worried about the loss of jobs and cuts in wages and have sent a letter to the CEO of T-Mobile’s parent company Deutsche Telekom.
In the letter to Timotheus Höttges, the workers said they’re concerned that the proposed merger between T-Mobile and Sprint will mean the loss of American jobs, cuts in wages and commissions and “a corresponding reduction in quality to our customers.”
Specifically, the letter calls for commitments that that New T-Mobile will “secure our jobs without cuts to compensation; bring back outsourced jobs from overseas and in the USA, and respect our rights on the job by stopping management interference with our right to organize.”
The letter was signed by the chief stewards of T-Mobile Workers United (TU), during a meeting with employee representatives on the DT supervisory board on Tuesday. During the meeting, they discussed their concerns about the merger and about T-Mobile management’s “ongoing interference with their efforts to join together to form a union,” according to a press release.
Höttges wasn’t present at that meeting, but the representatives reportedly promised to deliver the letter to him.
